Juab County has a rich history and culture, and offers tremendous opportunity for outdoor recreation.
The county was established in 1852 and originally included portions that are now in Nevada. The size of the county was reduced in 1854 and 1856; there were various other changes through the years until the current borders were set. The first real settlement came in 1851 when Mormon pioneers settled Nephi. They relied mainly on agriculture for their livelihoods.
Topography ranges from high, forested mountains with streams and lakes to sand dunes, and desert flatlands. We have mile after mile of wide-open spaces, with plenty of room to explore and play.
